    I fixed it by turning it off and then switching it to free style and back. When I turned it on, the shakes and the jolts disappeared.

`Hi. Sounds very much like a loose battery terminal, or a faulty battery lead connector.
I have also had a few machines that can start jerking because of worn or stuck motor brushes.
Also check the high/low speed switch if you have one, they sometimes cause problems.
How old are your batteries, worn out batteries can still be " fully charged", but are unable to supply the current ( amps ), that the motor needs.
Good luck. Neil.

Hi. Sounds to me as if you have a sticky carbon brush in the motor. Each brushe is held in the motor by small black plastic or bakealite cap that screw in the outside or the brush holders. If these caps are not tight enough then the brush or the spring will arc from the side of the brush holder. This causes the brush to become jamed, and does not contact with the commutator on the armature.
You need to remove the brushes, check that they slide freely in the brush holders, fit new springs if neccessary, and reassemble. If the brushes are too tight, the file very carefully on the sides to allow them to move freely. Do not tighten the black plastic caps too hard or they will break, but they have to be snug. Be carefull.
Good luck. Neil.

When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.

According to the Owners Manual: Circuit Breaker (Reset Button)
Your scooter is fitted with the latest in electronic controls that are programmed to protect
the electrical system from abnormal overloads. Provided for extra protection is a circuit
breaker, located on the battery pack. Should there be a situation where your scooter stops
for no apparent reason, please check that the circuit breaker has not popped.

If you have misplaced your Owners Manual, here is a link to one. It may not be the exact model you have (as, your Model # was not recognized), but they all work pretty much the same way.

Hope this helps to get you scooting along, again.

Toyota sienna 2001 won't go in reverse but it goes forward

Does it crunch? If you lift the clutch and then press it down whilst trying to get it into reverse as this lets the cogs move allowing you to slip the drive into the gears this may allow you to get it into reverse. So here's the steps:
1 start the the engine
2 drive the car for about 10 kms
3 try and get the vehicle into reverse
4 lift the clutch whilst holding the stick in the gate ( you should feel the cogs turning and shaking the stick)
5 then push the clutch down again
6 if it still won't go repeat step 4/5
if it still won't work then try and get it into reverse whilst stationary and then start the engine it will jolt but can free up the gears!

hope this helps :)

When i get up to 40 miles an hour the car has something shaking but only when it accelerates Also today... when starting the car and putting it into reverse it starts revving on its own

The shaking when under acceleration i most likely a bad CV Joint/Axle Assembly.

The revving in reverse could be caused by a crackedvacuum hose that opens up and creates a vacuum leak when the engine twists while it is in reverse.
